Some people just ain’t too bright…and some may be damaged beyond the point of saving.
The victim: his new girlfriend, adult performer Morgan Lee.
According to Lee, who has visible bruises, Clover “beat the shit out of” her this morning, and she pressed every possible charge against him. The charges he faces include domestic battery in the 1st degree, and possession of a controlled substance (cocaine, according to Lee).
The couple was in Las Vegas to attend the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, and were staying at Planet Hollywood along with fellow performer Hope Howell.
Lee told TRPWL that Clover also had hit her and choked her earlier, on Friday night. She “told a few people,” but did not file any report.
According to reports, this morning Clover returned to their room at Planet Hollywood when Lee was sleeping. “He came in drunk,” says Lee. “The incident happened at around 6;40 or 6:45.”
Clover picked her up by the neck, and tossed her, she revealed. “He threw me and I hit the wall.” Once she hit the floor, Lee said, she shouted ‘Hope help me!”
Howell woke up as the beating continued, and Lee made a run for the door.
“He was naked,” Lee said, although she was not certain why.
According to Lee, Clover grabbed a towel to cover himself, then took off after her. He caught her by the hotel elevators, she said, and began throwing her up against the wall.
Apparently the beating was caught on hotel surveillance video.
Hotel security arrived and held Clover until police arrived and took statements from Lee and Howell.
“I didn’t know he had cocaine until the police came and told me,” Lee said.
Lee estimates that Clover was booked at around 8:00 a.m. He is currently in custody at the Clark County Detention Center, on $8,000 bond.
Las Vegas Metro police officers advised Lee that Clover will be held for a minimum 12 hours, and she is using the time to go somewhere she feels safe. He is currently set for a hearing on Monday morning, Jan. 26.
Clover was released from jail in Los Angeles on January 7, having been remanded into custody on Nov. 17 in a Van Nuys courtroom. Clover had been given the choice of either accepting a plea deal or standing trial on charges stemming from a May 2014 beating of his now ex-girlfriend, makeup artist Jennifer Jaen.
In addition to jail time, was sentenced to 3 years probation, and one year of Domestic Violence classes. It is believed that these new charges will constitute a violation of the terms of his probation, possibly leading to a prison sentence for Clover.
Additionally, court ordered Clover to stay away from alcohol, and places where alcohol is sold, upon his release. According to Lee, Clover has not fulfilled that condition.
Jaen has previously stated that Clover attacked her in Las Vegas as well, back in May 2014.
“He beat me up in a hotel,” said Jaen. “He dragged me out of the bed by my feet. I hit my head hard on the bed frame and started crying. He started mocking me and said he’d give me a real reason to cry. [He] just started shoving me, hitting me, punching… I fell on the floor and he kicked my stomach, and before he left the room he poured a whole bottle of vodka on my face while I was on the floor crying. Then he threw the bottle at my head.”
“I tried calling for help from the hotel phone. He threw the phone away from me so I didn’t think it went through, but it did. It went through to the Front Desk. It just so happened that the head of hotel security was standing there, and [the] front desk handed her the phone. She heard everything, or at least enough to come up to the room with 2 other security guards — but Clover [had] bailed already.”
At his sentencing in November, Jaen told the court, “Casey is a ticking time bomb and it is only a matter of time before he severely hurts if not kills someone…. Someone who behaves as he does is a major threat to the community. It’s not just him beating up on his girlfriends. He starts fights in public settingswith other men and he drinks and drives frequently. God forbid he should crash and someone else should die due to his irresponsible and reckless ways. I believe it to be only a matter of time.”
